Words from our Guests April 20, 2023

Ever wonder about the impact of staying at a Fisher House for our military families?  Read here.

“To the wonderful people here at Fisher House – what a kind, loving, amazing place this is.  You go above and beyond with your beautiful set up, building and grounds.  Sinc we live in NH, when our son was hurt in Florida, you so kindly were able to put us up while we healed in adjoining rooms.  My husband was able to work remotely and I was able to help assist his recovery.  We were here a lot longer than I thought we would be, yet you never once made us feel uncomfortable.  God bless you!”

Progressive Health Clinic donates $1100

Dr. Godwin hosted a Patient Appreciation Day March 16 and named our Eglin Fisher House as a beneficiary.  They raised awareness, celebrated their patience on their health journey AND netted an $1110 donation to bless military and veteran families staying with us for hope and 

healing.  They received a tour of our house where the love happens and we were able to showcase  them in this check presentation.  Why Dr Godwin?  EXPERIENCE THE DIFFERENCE AT THE PROGRESSIVE HEALTH CLINIC! They exist to help people like you and your family be the best you can be and they love our mission at Fisher House.   Dr. Godwin is known for his Specificity, Customized Care, and Long-Term Results!  CALL TODAY! (850) 374-3926, or online.

Dr. Andrew Godwin is a chiropractor, acupuncturist, and functional medicine doctor who serves Fort Walton Beach and the surrounding communities in Florida. He uses chiropractic care to improve the health and wellness in all areas of patient’s lives, whether they are having problems with back pain or neck pain, or just want to start feeling better when they wake up in the morning. Dr. Godwin takes a “whole person” approach in chiropractic care, which means looking for the underlying causes of disease, discomfort, and pain, as opposed to just treating the symptoms. Many seemingly unrelated symptoms often arise from imbalances in the spinal column.  AND he loves our military  like we do!

February 6 – Words from Guests

This is the blessing business you are in partnership with us.  The who behind the you….

“I travelled all the way from RAF Alconbury in England to receive some much-needed mental health treatment here in Florida.  The Fisher House was a true blessing.  I was able to stay for a full 4-week treatment program and not worry about an overpriced hotel stay without options for cooking my own meals.  The staff here was very kind and helpful throughout my stay.  I truly appreciated the warm hospitality and comfortable environment.  God Bless you all!”

December 23 – Words from Guests

The reason for the Fisher House…..brought to this family by a generous community who love our military like we do.  Saying thank you in a tangible and meaningful way.

“My daughter was suddenly hospitalized at Eglin AFB last week and I drove from Jacksonville to be with her for an undetermined number of days. I started in a hotel room, but one of the nurses at the Eglin hospital told me about Fisher House, which I knew nothing about. What an absolutely incredible and pleasant surprise! From the moment I walked in and met Robert, to the moment I left, Fisher House was nothing but a God-sent blessing for me. It allowed me to focus my time and attention on my daughter and not worry about the logistics of my stay. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the love and grace of Fisher House. Merry Christmas!”

The blessing business and you….

We are blessed with many big hearts in the community who share our mission in various ways.  Thanks to
